Isabelle Saint-Jean, C’2020

May 2020

Isabelle Seant-JeanIsabelle Mona Saint-Jean is from a place where the sun does not stop shining -- Miami, Florida. The international studies major serves as the female mentorship director for Collegiate 100, Atlanta Chapter. Upon graduation, Saint-Jean plans to obtain a Masters in Management at a Grande Ecole in Paris, France.

To her Spelman sisters, Saint-Jean said, "Like many of you, I am able to walk on water. Being raised by Haitian immigrants, it was rare to find pre-made platforms to walk on. With the vision of building a dynasty, I needed to not waste time looking for platforms. Instead, I became the minority in every great setting. The leader in over 3,000 hours of community engagement, and I have had at least one internship a year for the past seven years (all government or corporate)."

She added, "With backgrounds like ours, we must be the impossibility in impossible."
